Does it seem to have pus in it? If it does, this might be a sign of a cyst. You should go to the doctor and have it checked in case because if it is a cyst, you will have to get surgery before it worsens.

If it's boil-like it could be a genetic skin disease called Hidradenitis Suppurativa, but if you don't get them anywhere else, it probably isn't.

Could be a Pilonidal Cyst. Those you get on the tailbone or "Crack" of your buttock, very painful...Had one removed twice.
